First-grade certificates may be renewed if the holder attends the Teachers' County Institutes. State Supt. John J. McMahan states in his annual report, 1901: "No examination has been held for a State certificate for many years. A college diploma secures this certificate. At a recent meeting of the State board of education it was decided to permit applicants to take examination for State certificate at the time for regular county examinations.

The governor and State superintendent of education are empowered to grant State certificates upon the presentation of diplomas from reputable colleges and universities in other States of as high rank as leading colleges of this State,

such certificate to be subject to confirmation by the State board at its next meeting. (School Laws 1903, p. 29, sec. 10.).

Persons who may have stood successful examination on nine courses in the State summer school are entitled to a State certificate to teach: Provided, That they make 90 per cent on each of three of these courses: And further provided, That the State superintendent of education, upon investigation, deems them worthy of State certificates. (Report 1902–3, p. 84.)

Graduates of the State Peabody normal college or institute, or holding “roll of honor" certificate are exempt from examination, and their certificates are good throughout the State.

Heretofore life certificates have been issued exempting teachers from further examination, but by the action of the State board life certificates are forbidden, and all who stand examination this or any succeeding year shall be granted certificates which shall expire four years from date. This does not interfere with parties now holding life certificates. (State Superintendent's Circular, April 3, 1902.)
